in the name of religion- not to pick on islam by any means- but in the name of most all religions down through history, we've seen a tendency to act in a way that can somehow justify spiritually or religiously violent acts. and that's a scary point because when you think about religion, in its most beautiful form- and i hearken back to our look at the experiential dimension and mysticism when we hear these wonderful words like unity and oneness and love and interconnection- that seems to be the grounding of the ethical precepts in the various religions- love your neighbor, be kind, don't harm other people. but for me- and i wrestle with this stuff; you know, i'm not just the talking head up here, i struggle when i see violence done in the name of religion- and i began to think it's- you know, can you really teach ethical precepts? i mean, isn't it ultimately experiential? i mean, as long as you think you or your group is the center of the world and everything else revolves around you, then it's possible for you to do things that don't create the good, the beautiful, the enduring. but you know,

culture in any religion. what you're saying, susanna, really strikes me with the law profession, is that if you're- and we're back to the experiential dimension- if you conceive of yourself as the spoke in the wheel, you're the hub, the world revolves around you and everybody else is going to ultimately be after you, then it's very difficult to not take the newspapers, to not want to find a way to get ahead, to jump ahead. but you know, that's the way it is in society. warren, go ahead; you've had your hand waving. >> i always hear that this is a very litigious society that we live in, but my experience has led me to believe that there's not enough litigation. i have known many people over the years who had cases who were really abused by doctors- mostly doctors- and would not sue them. but i mean, it was a clear case of neglect or malpractice. and i think some people i think cannot sue because, you know, the law is against them or something. but i know two people that had dead-bang malpractice committed on them and they wouldn't sue- real problems. >> let me show you one other-

about the old constitutional world and a new constitutional world with religion? >>guest: for most of our nation's history it is the state's that controlled access to rights of religious organizations and so on and tear of the decades that began to shift as the supreme court applies the national constitutional establishment and free exercise clauses of the first amendment against the state to have a centralizing debate against religion. >>host: of the state's have controls we have freedom of religion. >>guest: yes but the first amendment begins congress shall enact no laws and directed only to the national government. >>host: were there restrictions? >> yes. several states had religious establishments than most limited the amount of property they could own, as some tax religious property others would not let have group practices sandy eventually various states in the southwest banning polygamy for example,. >>host: with massachusetts or pennsylvania as a case study of states regulating religion. >> pennsylvania had been active blasphemy law that we would now think of as unconstitut

great class here on islam- we're going to be asking another world religion to help us understand the doctrinal dimension. but we're having so much fun and we've had such an interesting set of classes that i'd just like throw it out- whatever "it" is- once again to this great audience, and any observations you've had since we last met that bring up some of our key class themes- we're always getting some interesting comments here. yeah, virginia? >> i wasn't going to say anything this week. however- >> why not? >> i've found that- i opened new yorker, and here are political cartoons on our meditation- one thing, it says, "our journey." you know, he says, "have we arrived yet?"- these little children sitting there in meditative poses. and when we were talking about the dome of the rock, there's a spread in the magazine about that. everything seems so current now. >> you begin to see these things once you- it reminds me of my geology class. you know, i took geology to get through my general ed, and just taking that course, it helps me see more in the natural environment, and hopefull

and religion in general, as is our way in this class, but we think about identity and relationship. well, what if we talked about identity and self-esteem and relationship as empowerment? that's what i think we're seeing when we're talking about the african-american muslim movement. in other words, identity is self-esteem- a person must feel good about themselves- and relationship is about empowerment. and i'm- you know, this is not the gospel truth here, as always- i'm working with some ideas that we're familiar with, so we can try to make sense of this powerful doctrinal statement. so when we look at the nation of islam, as we have here on the graphic, we can see it as a reinterpreretation of traditionl islamic or muslim doctrine, in order to meet ethical challenges in a society that is perceived to be racist by african-americans. see where i'm headed with this? that we take traditional muslim doctrines and we reinterpret it in order to raise up self-esteem- that is, identity- and raise up relationship, which is empowerment, and this may be the key behind it. well, of course, i'll ask our ex

it clear while we don't have jurisdiction over religion in the same way we don't over sexual orientation, what we're seeing in all of these -- and all of these are case by case, you can't just broad sweep the laws -- when students are bullied and harassed in this world because of religion, in most instances a lot of that is not about race or religion, it's because. perception that students that share certain religious traits also share certain ethnicities and that is discrimination and that falls under title 6. it is not just about enforcing the laws that make it clear how the laws apply. it is, though, as we said, you can't get at this through enforcement alone. this is a culture that tolerates this and in too many ways promotes it. as tom mentioned we have an unprecedented partnership not just between our agencies but agencies across the federal government that the president has convened to bring our best resources and minds to bear to do something about it. there is now a web site, where a tool kit is being developed and these kinds of best practices are being promo

century, is the power that comes with running things-- governments, armies, religions-- all that it used to be? in "the end of power," moises naim of the carnegie endowment for international peace argues that power as we've understood it for a long time is both harder to use and to keep. he joins me now. governments are bigger than they've ever been, armies more powerful and about to project power more than they've ever been. banks also big enough to take down whole continents much less countries. how could power be harder to use? >> in each of those examples you have situations where -- that shows that size no longer matters as much. think about the taliban and the army they areacing the coalition army of some of the most modern sophisticated military ever assembled. well, they're not winning but they're denying victory to this very large coalition. think about the large companies that you mentioned, especially the financial sector. of course they now concentrate a lot of asset bus many of them are on their attack. many of them have been -- some of the c.e.o.s have been fired. all of th

religion, but particularly islam, there's not always a clear understanding to what the first amendment guarantees, which is the right to teach about a religion but not proselytize about it. i think there's fear of associating with anyone associated with islam. there are events outside our control that creates more interest and unfortunately also makes people more afraid. one of the programs we are about to launch is putting all our content online so a teacher in north dakota where there are no muslim, potentially, no expert can come to her classroom, they can go to our web site and download the content and teach the things we are teaching. >> i think partnerships are the best way to overcome the limitations because we all have limitations. and sometimes it's just visibility. we actually have on our web site 50 short films and one of them is a muslim student from a school in fremont going to a school in arinda talking about what it's like going to school as a muslim in the united states and they are asking questions and you see we are all kids in school and we have more similaritie

response will depend very much on who that suspect is, their nationality, ethnicity, and religion. once again, depending who it is, there will be a tidal wave of political pressure to push them out of the normal categories and structures of criminal law and into the categories and structures to deal with terrorism that our political and judicial system has constructed in the wake of 9/11. the fight will be whether to treat him or her as a criminal in a federal court or as a terrorist in a military tribunal. to treat the bomb x of the boston marathon as a crime or as an act of war. almost 12 years after september 1 19, we are still operating within the generally ad hoc legal regime that the push administration created centered on making a crucial distinction between a criminal act and act of terrorism. so, the question we have to ask now, is that the right way to think about what just happened? does the distinction between crime and terrorism clarify things and make us safer, or does it obscure what we should actually be keeping our eyes on? joining me, former fbi agent, security consult
